OH…MY….GOODNESS!  OH MY GOODNESS!  We knew Toy Story 4 was coming and we couldn’t be more excited 😀  Nearly two decades after Pixar Animation Studios created the world’s first computer-animated feature film with TOY STORY, it revealed plans for Disney•Pixar’s TOY STORY 4, an adventure that returns audiences to the world of the studio’s signature characters.  My kids (mostly my son) are over the moon just thinking about all of the toys that will be in this Toy Story film.   The film is scheduled to be released on June 16, 2017.

From Disney/Pixar:

Nearly two decades after Pixar Animation Studios created the world’s first computer-animated feature film with “Toy Story,” it revealed plans for Disney•Pixar’s “Toy Story 4,” an adventure that returns audiences to the world of the studio’s signature characters.

John Lasseter, director of the original “Toy Story” and “Toy Story 2,” will direct the film, which opens a new chapter in the lives of Woody, Buzz Lightyear and the “Toy Story” gang. The story was dreamt up by Lasseter, Andrew Stanton, Pete Docter and Lee Unkrich, the storytellers who have been the driving force behind all three “Toy Story” films.

“We love these characters so much; they are like family to us,” said Lasseter. “We don’t want to do anything with them unless it lives up to or surpasses what’s gone before. ‘Toy Story 3’ ended Woody and Buzz’s story with Andy so perfectly that for a long time, we never even talked about doing another ‘Toy Story’ movie. But when Andrew, Pete, Lee and I came up with this new idea, I just could not stop thinking about it. It was so exciting to me, I knew we had to make this movie—and I wanted to direct it myself.”

Writing team Rashida Jones and Will McCormack (“Celeste and Jesse Forever”) joined the project, and Pixar veteran Galyn Susman (ABC’s “Toy Story OF TERROR!” and “Toy Story that Time Forgot”) is producing.

The film is slated for release on June 16, 2017.

  • After seeing how Toy Story 3 ended, I really don’t see how they can have another movie. The ending was perfect. I’m sure it will be just as good as the others, but sometimes I think they need to stop while they’re ahead.
    Thanks for the info! My kids will be excited to watch this new installment. (We’re total Disney fans!)
